This place is just amazing! The ambiance, the service, the food, the drinks, just perfect! We tried: tuna tartare, crab croquettes, shrimp cocktail, corn bread with smoked honey butter, Brussels sprouts, scallops & the snapper. WOW JUST WOW! Everything was delicious and decadent. Our waiter, Paul, was incredible. Gave amazing suggestions, cheered us on when we picked good eats. He made it so exciting to be there. We cannot wait to come back and bring our family and friends to enjoy this amazing gem here in Hollywood FL!

Our server was well versed on the menu and made excellent recommendations. The wine prices were excessively high. Some wines were marked up in excess of 3 times the retail price. There was a unique cocktail menu with unusual but, very tasty combinations. The food and presentation were very good. The Diplomat Hotel is absolutely gorgeous. I would recommend this restaurant, especially for the seafood lover.

Our appetizer was over cooked by quite a bit and then both of our entrees were incredibly salty. We only ate about a quarter of our meal and when the waiter came to clear he didn’t even ask why we hadn’t eaten much.

First, the server, Paul was exceptional. Very friendly, very menu knowledgeable. His recommendations were excellent. The management made sure I was satisfied. The restaurant GM came to my table, introduced herself, inquired about my satisfaction. Impressed. The food was excellent. Presentation, top flight. I was told all pasta is made in house. Nothing like fresh pasta. Also, as much as possible, all seafood & vegetables are locally sourced. Try the heirloom lettuce salad. Especially go for the fresh linguini & clam sauce. Finally, they give extra special attention to birthdays. Can't really admit to being a "foodie" but I highly recommend it if you're in Hollywood Beach, Florida.

Very disappointing experience. Huge fan of Geoffrey Zakarian so I was over the moon when I found out his restaurant was inside the hotel. The service was very, very slow and I wasn’t impressed with the cocktail menu. I disliked the overly sweet flavors of the ceviche and I didn’t enjoy the gumbo. The oysters and Brussels sprouts were fine, as was the cornbread served at the beginning of the meal.. I hate to say this, but overall the flavors were off and I wouldn’t recommend this place.

They went out of their way to help celebrate my sisters birthday and I appreciate it so much! We traveled from Orlando for one night just to try this restaurant and it was so worth it!! We will definitely be back!! This dining experience was unlike any other! Thank you so much!!!

Never before have I had food this good served this quickly. The timing between courses was perfection only having about 3 minutes between each. I went here first for lunch one day and have the lobster roll and it's easily the best lobster roll I've ever had with a large whole piece of lobster as the base

Then the next night I had dinner starting with east coast oysters, then the roasted scallops, finished with an apricot souffle cake for dessert. As good as the food was, what really made my night was the knowledge and conversation of my server Gary. He explained the difference in taste and appearance of east and west coast oysters. I commented on the sheer perfection of the carmelized scallops and he explained how the kitchen prepares and cooks them for that perfect result. He recommended the apricot souffle cake which was the perfect finish to an incredible meal.

The entire staff was friendly and professional and service was quick from seating, to ordering, to cooking, to bussing. I can't wait to come back.

We waited over 1hr to be seated on Mother’s Day. We had reservations at 10:45. At 11:45. Before we sat down the hostess told us since our reservation was at 10:45 we have to order from the breakfast menu. Even though it was brunch we reserved, she told us they had over booked and we were not allowed to have brunch which began at 12pm. At that moment we left. Horrible experience. Wouldn’t recommend this place.

First...its a hotel - nice hotel. But, for that, it was good food and selections. Service is a buffet style meal. The cost was approx. $35 per person...HIGH for a breakfast buffet and we didn't have alcohol. But, if guests in hotel don't want to leave for other brunch locations or only place that serves at 10:00 a.m. (most brunches at other places opened at 11:00 a.m.), then this works.

We were made to feel like very valued patrons even though it was our first time there!

Husby and I were excited to try Chef GZ's new restaurant at The Diplomat Hotel. However, the only meal we would have the chance to attend was Brunch on Sunday. The Brunch was pretty nice, no seafood except Smoked Salmon, no Bloody Mary or Mimosa offered which was a disappointment! However, the gentleman behind us asked for a Bloody and he did get one but like I said, our server never even asked if we wanted one. A BIG mistake in my opinion. The buffet was basically what you would expect on a Breakfast Buffet with a few different items sprinkled in. There was an omelette station, a cold station with the salmon, some cheese, onion, capers...etc. There were also pre-made eggs and meats, a unique pastrami egg sammie, yogurt, toppings, overnight oats, toppings, bagels, muffins, some salads etc. Overall pretty nice. Price (which we couldn't find posted anywhere nor the menu or even that they were open for Brunch was $35.p/p ++ which included coffee and fresh OJ. We got up from the table to go get a few more items since we don't like to cram our plates full of food and our waiter, although we had not yet paid, assumed we had left and removed everything! He then proceeded to tell us that we didn't "ask" if we could return to the buffet. Very odd. Yes, I would go back when I am in the area but not to Brunch and I'd get a different server. Love to try the Oyster Hour!

BEWARE. Very poor service. Recommend beer or bottle of wine. $ 16+ drinks are 2-3 ounces. Food can be ok, service is so disorganized. Very expensive for what you get (buffet bkfast is $ 40, dinner well more, drinks expensive and anemic). Would be tolerable if service wasn't so uncoordinated due to really poor mgmt from front desk and a slew of "seniors" standing around doing nothing. The hostesses can't ever seem to find anyone to clean tables to set up for next people waiting and won't help do it themselves. Busing, table cleaning, getting water refilled are beyond problematic. Can take 15 minutes for a table to get cleaned and reset. At dinner Saturday, 3 hostesses, 2 others standing, none doing required work. Waited 10 minutes at dinner to order our drinks, then 25+ for our drinks. Had to ask 3x for water refills to get one - you ask your waitress and they appear under instructions to give very little water to get you to order drinks. Picture of my $ 16 drink - note the water glass is low height and the height of the cocktail glass barely comes to bottom of the wine glass behind it. This is not a big glass even if cropping the photo makes it look bigger. After receiving, I sent it back asking them to fill it up after it took 30 minutes to get it. Glass was already small enough but less than half full - this picture IS the 'corrected' version. Seriously. Sent the 2nd try back, asked for a beer. At least you know you are getting a full bottle. Just no coordination on the floor. NONE of the food came out together by table - 1 entree would come out or 2 people would get their appetizer. 5 minutes later maybe another or 2 more. Entrees had bigger gaps. When we finally got our main dishes, 10 minutes went by before we could find anyone to ask for our side dishes (the $ 26 and up fish have no sides - those are extra). The sides did finally come out and those did get comp'd because they were almost dessert.

The food, service and food value was good, not great!
First of all, we got there 8:45Pm, the hostess was not very pleasant, and could not find my name on the reservation system. Took us to the bar to wait 20 min. We ordered wine, and looked around many tables available, so we did not understand why to wait if there were tables available, hostess came back at 9:10 to sit us.
When we ordered the check, waitress charged us for the wine, which we already paid at the bar.

Waited for well over 30 mins for our waiter to return to order dessert and get the check, and finally had to send my kids to the hotel store to get dessert and I had to go to hostess stand to have them retrieve our waiter. No offer of apologies were made. Water glasses never refilled, and drinks were never offered after first seated. Shrimp was mushy in shrimp and grits, and there were more heads than tails. Mussels were extra large, tough, sandy and loaded in mustard sauce. Grilled salmon was good. Service was atrocious.
